In terms of content, socially and politically relevant themes form the guidelines of various arguments. Of special interest is the human body and its social codings within the areas of gender-specific issues, such as one’s identity with reference to biographical, ethnic and territorial problem areas and space as a performative framework of human actions. The art system, its rituals and the teaching of art are also further areas of analysis. Since the production of gradual works, temporary installations and fleeting art movements requires a “fixation” of events in relation to media, further emphasis lies on documentation and presentation. Classes take place in the form of weekly private consultations and fortnightly class meetings. Excursions, guest lectures and workshops extend the scope of the discussion topic to other areas of study. The various practice-orientated activities such as exhibitions and thematic projects give students the chance to examine their own discourse in relation to the outside world and to define their own position both in and outside of an artistic context.
